Hero Power Deal 1 damage. If this kills a minion, summon a Water Elemental.
In my eyes it's a pretty cool hero power which allows to trade 2 mana for a 3-6 elemental..If you add that your elemental can give you back health then the 2 mana exchange is nothing compared to what you earn..
I played with her as elemental mage... this card is mvp.I recommend using her when you are controlling at least few elementals to instantly gain advantage of lifesteal (this saved me multiple times)Getting enemy minions to 1 hp and finishing them off is really easy and since that is what you are usually doing as a mage gaining extra water elementals for 2 mana (with lifesteal) is pretty nice dealShe might not seem too good at first but when you will play around with her you'll see her true potential.
Can be used at own minions (Sindragosa tokens, Hex frogs, etc)
I haven't played mage at all in Un'Goro. Looks like that's about to change. :)
Comparing this card to Lord Jaraxxus it has it own cons and pros
+ it kills a minion then summon a 3/6 with life steal
+ you keep your health bar and has potential to heal back to 30
+ your elementals freezes the target it attacks which is better in the long run
+ you could kill your own minion to summon another one if you dont have better targets
- it is a 9 Mana which you cant use the effect the turn it is played
- you need a 1 health target to get the effect value
in general, it is not hard for mage to survive until the late game with a number of removals and aoe the class has, but will the meta be slow enough to give this card all the value? we will have to wait and see
This seems really powerful? Water Elemental with life steal for 2 mana if it kills a minion and with all the spells mage has it should not be a big problem.
But looking at this effect I start to wonder if Ice Block will make it to next expansion or that this is their alternative for keeping yourself alive. They did mention in an interview they are reviewing ice block as it is a bit overpowered maybe?
2 mana deal 1 damage, if it kills a minion summon a 3/6 elemental with lifesteal and the ability to freeze any minion it attacks.Yes, please. Give it to me now.
